help, when if they could send a^ mess

shipped in a lot of stock. New settlers
are corning into our part of the

known that the depot was open at
Montpelier and an agent there, a good
deal of business would come to the

of that part of the county in saying
that we hope the depot will not be
kept closed much longer.

TWO CREWS AT WORK.
The Northern Pacific has two sur
veying crews in the field, one south
of Windsor and the other at LaMoure.
In the latter town the lines have been
run through door yards and the sur
veying going on has set people all to
guessing. The men are sleeping in
tents and say that they are more
comfortable than in some of the farm
ers' houses. There are all sorts of
rumors as to the objects of the rush
work going on and many think that
it means the building of another
Northern Pacific branch across the
southern part of Stutsman county
next spring. As far as known no
Milwaukee surveyors have been in the
field at all in this county this winter
although farmers have so reported.
The preliminary surveying work is
being done, as far as known by the
Northern Pacific surveyors, alone.
The rumors point to an extension
north or northwest from Edgeley by
the N. P.
There is a large scope of good farm
ing and grazing country lying in the
counties of Stutsman, LaMoure,
Logan and Kidder which has no
adequate transportation facilities.
The area comprises the southern parts
of Stutsman and Kidder counties and
the northern parts of Logan and La
Moure counties. The Northern Pa
cific on the east and north, and the
Soo on the west and south, with the
Milwaukee running a stub line into
Edgeley are the roads that'serve this
area of country which is from 50 to
70 miles east and west and about 35
miles north and south. There has
been little inducement for the settler
to go into the interior of this region
as the haul for grain to any station on
either of the roads is a long one. The
Russian settlers are taking up most
of the land between the Soo and the
N. P. tracks. The country only needs
a line of railroad through it to bring
in a large number of new settlers and
start land sales going. It is believed

TOUGH AT THE START.
Fremont Bennett: If I have good
luck another year with our crops we
will have a half section of land about
clear and I will feel as ir all the hard
work we have done the last few years
has not gone unrewarded. I got 1,200
.bushels of flax oil 70 acres of land
this fall. Have a quarter section all
paid for, and started with mighty
little. Sometimes the family has
done without a good many luxuries
to get some necessaries. My wife
drove a binder and we had to do a good

got a start that way, and laugh at it

A STORY OF SUCCESS.
The most successful and popular
railroad in the Northwest is the
Famous North-Western Line. The
secret of their success lies in the fact
that they have always been pioneers
in introducing improvements for the
comfort and convenience of their
patrons. They were the first to oper

then fully equipped Limited trains
between the twin cities and Chicago,
and today finds the North-Western

When a physician tells a woman suffering with
ovarian or womb trouble that an operation is neces
sary, it of course frightens her.
The very thought of the operating table and the
knife strikes terror to her heart.
And our hospitals are full of women who are
there for ovarian and womb operations!
It is quite true that these troubles may reach a
stage where an operation is the only resource, but
such cases are much rarer than is generally sup
posed, because a great many women have been cured
by Mrs. Pinkham's medicine after the doctors had
said the operation must be performed.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has
been very successful in curing ovarian troubles. In
fact, up to the point where the knife must be used to
secure instant relief, this medicine is certain to help.
Ovarian troubles are easily developed from
womb troubles, and womb troubles are so very
common that ovaritis is steadily oh the increase
among women. It is, nevertheless, a most seri
ous trouble, and to recommend wrong treatment
for it is a crime for which there cannot be too
deep n. penalty.
It is, therefore, with full consciousness of the
seriousness of the disease, and the steady failure of
other medicine to cure it, that we present for ova
rian and womb trouble Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound as the most certain to help of any
medicine in the world to-day. Any person who
could read the letters in Mrs. Pinkham's files at her
office in Lynn, Mass., would be convinced of the effi
ciency of Mrs. Pinkham's Compound.
The strongest and most grateful statements
possible to make come from women who have
escaped the operating table by the use of this
medicine. Let any woman suffering from these
troubles, or anything which may develop into
thma, write and get Mrs. Pinkham's advice.
Ii you are beyond the reach of the medicine,
you will be frankly told so, but, if not, you will
be fully, and carefully, and kindly advised.

It is just such men as these that

It is just such men, who are wanted

have thought of helping that woman?

not—let us learn a lesson from this.

Three letters as proof taken from hundreds
received during the current year.
August 29th, 1001.
DEAR MBS. PINKHAM:— Some time ago I wrote
you how I suffered. The doctor called my trouble con
gestion of the womb also stated that my womb was*
turned so that I could never have any more children, and
that the only cure was an operation. I was so sore and
swollen across me that it hurt me to walk. At time of
menstruation 1 suffered terribly. A friend advised ma
to write to you, and after receiving your reply to my let*
ter, 1 gave up doctoring with the doctor, and followed
your advice, for which I cannot thank you enough.
"Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
proved to be just the medicine I needed, and saved rae
from a terrible surgical operation. After a time I gave
birth to a nice boy. He has always been healthy and is
the joy and sunshine of our home. I know had it not
Veen for your medicine I never would have had my little
bey. May God bless you in the good you are doing for
suffering women." Mas. GEOBGI HOLLAND,
54 Grove Ave., East Providence, B.I.
Mrs. M. 6. Merritt, Payson, Arizona, writes
"DEAR MRS. PISKHAM :—I thought I would write
to you as 1 have been taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
1 had been sick for twelve years. I suffered a great
deal with my ovaries and kidneys, had a discharge with
a bad odor. Would bloat up after eating, felt tired all
the time. The doctor said an operation was necessary.
I commenced taking your medicine last April and
it has cured me. I have gained in weight, and feel better
than 1 have for years."
Mrs. F. O. Veghte, Koselle, NJ, writes:
DEAR MRS. PINKHAM :—I wish to thank you for
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, which
cured me, after I had suffered for years with ovarian
troubles. The pain in my back was agonizing, and I had
leucorrhoea very badly. I doctored until I thought there
was no hope for me, and although it was strongly against
my principles to take anything not prescribed by a doe
tor, finally I began to take Lydia E Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound. It did me so much good that
I continued its use, and I am now entirely free from pain
and disease, and escaped a dreadful surgical operation.
Anyone who knows the agony caused by ovarian troubles,
will understand how thankful I am for the great change
in me, for which I am eternally grateful to you. For
years I have nursed women in confinement cases, and I
know how terribly women suffer from female disorders,
and in all my experience I have never known of anything
else that would really help those who are afflicted. I be
lieve your Vegetable Compound will cure the very worst
case of female weakness."
